Just Can't Get Enough: The Photography of Robert Alford

Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, 1981

Robert Alford

Alford first met ZZ Top in 1974, when the band opened for T. Rex at the Michigan Concert Palace in Detroit and built a close friendship soon thereafter, even traveling with the band on tour and around the world. This particular image is a shot of Billy Gibbons in front of a horse-drawn Ford Model A wagon in Mexico.
